Hey, we’re not forcing toddlers to represent themselves in court. We don’t give them public defenders, but sometimes pro bono lawyers show up. And at the end of the day almost four in five toddlers have legal representation. Why are people pissed?

That's amazing. Of all the anti-immigration arguments, this is the one that it is most laughable on its face. If someone lives in San Francisco or New York or SoCal I might think it's dumb but at least I can understand why they might think that. Someone from Wyoming saying that makes me wonder how he is intelligent enough to operate that stroller.

I hope the kid isn't actually his. I'd hate to think that his DNA is being passed along.

At least illegal immigrants have DNA for climbing, jumping, swimming, surviving dehydration, and outwitting border guards. Let them in; the gene pool needs a boost.

A lawsuit filed by a migrant woman whose 14-month-old was returned to her after 85 days says the baby's clothes weref illed with dirt and lice when she got him back; apparently the kid has not been bathed at all.

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/worl ... 35456.html
A child was returned to his parents “full of dirt and lice” 85 days after being taken by US immigration and customs enforcement (ICE) at the border, according to his mother.

Olivia Caceras made the claim about her 14-month-old son in a lawsuit filed by 17 states and Washington DC against Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” family separation policy at the US border that has resulted in more than 2,300 children being separated from parents or guardians upon entry.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions had even made seeking asylum a crime and those who had crossed the border illegally for the first time were detained separately from their children and sent to facilities throughout Texas and beyond.

Ms Caceras’ testimony is one of many included in the court filing, totalling nearly 1,000 pages.

She said about her son’s return: “He continued to cry when we got home and would hold on to my leg and would not left me go”.

“When I took off his clothes, he was full of dirt and lice...It seems like they had not bathed him the 85 days he was away from us,” she noted.
I wonder how long it'll be before the first kids start dying of mistreatment in our concentration camps. And how much longer it'll be before we hear about this.

The thing about body lice is that (duh) if one kid is infested, it's a sure bet that lots of kids are. And IIRC, body lice is far worse than head lice, because head lice will "only" make your head horribly itchy, whereas body lice spreads all sorts of wretched diseases, including typhus.

MAKE AMERICA GREAT -- by having kids in our concentration camps die of the same thing that killed Anne Frank.

These kids parents make me rethink my stance on CPS taking away kids. Alternatively, how cock-punching is a violation of NAP.

A Canadian coworker, with a work visa was stopped at the border by CBP. This coworker is in our consulting arm. The CBP moron said, “[Employer] isn’t a consulting company,” they did a 10 minute interview, didn’t look at his valid paperwork and revoked his visa. Nothing our lawyers could do at the time. Outside counsel should make big bucks on a slam dunk win.

I thought CBP and CBP employees was essentially immune from any sort of lawsuit. (I thought I heard stories about them essentially flouting habeus corpus and ignoring SCOTUS.)

The employee is immune, which is horseshit, but CBP can be sued. I think for something egregious like this, i.e. employees who think only consulting companies have consulting arms, you can probably hit for damages.

Thanks for clarifying.

A six-year-old girl taken from her mother was later sexually abused in a migrant detention center. The girl was then forced to sign a statement saying it is her responsibility to stay away from her abuser.



EDIT: Fixed worst possible typo, in this context.

I may make an exception to my opposition to the death penalty here. But it's ok, according to her PR flacks Axios, Ivanka feels so bad about the child separations that she was struck mute when it was an ongoing issue.

An alternate take is that the Trump administration discovered and prosecuted a sexual predator who was hired under Obama administration policies.

What's especially reprehensible, according to another article I read on the matter, is that "Obamacare subsidies" are apparently to be included among the "benefits" which would disqualify people. Except Obamacare is a legal obligation. Miller and the Trumpsters are basically proposing to penalize immigrants for obeying the law.

I know there are ridiculous bureaucracies, but why is this one so atrocious? Is it the opposite department or something? Do they just figure out how they can make themselves look as bad as possible?
